Hundreds protest Erdogan visit in France

Hundreds protested against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the French city of Lyon on Saturday as he visited Europe ahead of an expected bid for the presidency. Organisers said 1,000 people took part in the protest organised by pro-democracy and minority groups near a local government office, where Erdogan met regional officials. It scorns democracy by violently repressing peaceful demonstrations and minorities,” said Mehmet Demirbas, head of a local cultural centre for the Alevi community in Lyon. The community, which follows a moderate form of Islam and accounts for 10-15 million of Turkey’s 76 million citizens, has frequently clashed with Erdogan’s government.
